1956 Chevy Pro-Touring Project
Owner: George Poteet

 

The TRI 5 Chevrolets are some of the most recognized cars from the 50's era.  The challenges on this project are to have superior handling and drivability with subtle styling changes without loosing its identity.

We built a one-off chassis using Detroit Speed Components.  Many body, engine compartment, and interior modifications were necessary to dial in the theme of this Pro-Touring 56.
